Tripping the 40a breaker is curious. That should never happen unless the breaker gets too hot or is defective. Make sure the wire clamps on the circuit breaker and wall connection are clean and tight. Make sure breaker is well seated.
The EVSE communicates with the car to tell it the peak amps the EVSE and Car can support, and it's capped to the lower value.
This should never hit past 32 amps under any conditions. When you plugged the car in, they told each other car only accepts 32 amps peak. A correctly wired 40 amp circuit should never get hot enough from 32 amps to trip the breaker.
If the connections are solid, you might have a bad EVSE, or cable from outlet to the EVSE box.
Copper conducts heat extremely well, so a weak connection can pass heat a long distance.
The I-Pace will charge at the full 32a very close to 100%.
